Glenn Hauser logs May 19-20, 2023

Saturday, May 20 2023

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat May 20 at 2110, LRA36 is JBA S3/S5
into Argentine SDR, W&M conversation mentioning radioaficionados, then
fades in a bit better vs noise level. Today it was reported first at
*2003 direct to Spain by Manuel Méndez. It broke off but came back.
Nominal schedule is until 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, May 20 at 0619, RHC English, S9+10/20 with squeal on 2
x 6100, which is weaker, only S9/+10. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290, Friday May 19 at 1828 I check IRRS SW,
presumably via Bulgaria, S9/+20 into UTwente, during the time WOR used
to air - and I briefly recognize the British voice of Ray Robinson, so
it must be `AWR Wavescan` --- but he`s chopped off at 1830 for
`Feature Story News`, 1833 rock music. TG when WOR was running at 1815
it would not be truncated -- tho another webcast-only, Sat at 2334,
misses the last 5 minutes so FSN can run first and something else at
0000 - altho I have not rechecked this lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460, May 19 at 2020, only signal around here
weak speech in Turkish? S0/S1 direct so probably Recep`s jammer and/or
Dengê Welat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, May 20 at 0623, VON is S9/+10 but JBM. Standard
remarx about futility, abysmalness (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 15770 // 7730, May 20 at 0638, R. Eslovaquia
Internacional via WRMIs in Spanish instead of English. This was the
transmission repeating the Jan 30 English show forever and ever;
perhaps Jeff noted my report about that. No ID heard, but kept talking
about Slovakia. Nor do I know whether it were a new program, but
probably. In Spanish do they announce current date at opening, like
most of the time in English? The skedgrid dated May 12 has now been
updated to show Eslovaquia at 0630 daily on System H, 15770 & 7730.
When else? 5010 at 0030, and 9955 at 0330 on System H sked; but
frequency grid atop shows 0230 instead on 9955 System B. Also M-F 1230
on B 9955. The sked remains self-contradictory (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri May 19 at 2200, SNR in English, VG into NA5B
remote and I can`t help but notice that frequency displays as 17855,
offset minus 108 Hz! I don`t think so. Compared to Virginia remote,
shows only minus 3 Hz. UTwente, 17855.001. Then I check NA5B tuning
WWV as if on: 20000 -121 Hz, 15000 -92 Hz, 10000 -61 Hz - So this SDR
is now miscalibrated and the amount of error is proportional to
frequency. One of the topix previewed at s/on was about a classical
music festival in Andorra, but I missed it mainly monitoring Turkey
this time. Nor did I check the other three REE frequencies remotedly
or directedly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.007, May 19 cuts on a few sex before *2200, late
timesignal and opening VOT English, S9+50 into UTwente. As usual now
with some overmodulation/distortion, especially the music. 2213 about
May 19 being the Atatürk Youth & Sports holiday. 2214 `Weekly
Analysis` about the elexion, alleging there was 88.92% turnout,
proving T is a funxioning democracy. Recep got slightly less than 50%
requiring a runoff but confident he can make up the difference and
win: then over to a prof for further analysis. 2235 recheck going from
`The Healing Spring` to `Did You Know That` with their respective
theme musix, which are each always the same including announcement at
both opening and closing. DYKT, something about Atatürk having written
the first astronomy book in Turkish -- really? And getting a crater on
the Moon named for him. Then mostly music. By now has drifted down to
11785.003. 2251 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2253 standard s/off.
2354 IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs -- and yes, extraneous German
starts at 2300 including same themetunes as in English. 2320
multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2324* chopped off air abruptly as the
sleepyrator finally awakens, tough luck, extraneous German listeners.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28224.5 CW, May 20 at 1542, K5GJR/B is the JBA OSOB, no
other beacons nor phones during quick 10m bandscan. Starts with call,
K, and gridsquare. Faded up enough to copy during several iterations.
WI5V roster:

Have heard before only during summer Es seasons: 2022: July 3, June 5;
2021: July 22, June 11, June 3 and referring to some more in 2020y:

28224.5-CW, June 3 [2021] at 1805, beacon K5GJR/B EL17, i.e.:
I also logged him several times last June, July & August 2020:
Randy L Bates, Corpus Christi, TX 78415 USA ``I have a 10mtr beacon
that runs 24/7 at 28.224.5, consisting of a Radio Shack HTX100,
putting out 2.5 watts, using a Pico keyer kit I assembled, into a
Antron A-99 vertical antenna at 40'... 73s Randy k5gjr`` CC is 957 km
= 595 statute miles from Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Gary Pence also reported him among others on Oct 30, 2022:
``10 meter beacons copied at KB1VWC rSDR (Remotely) East Falmouth, MA.
FN41rn ---

1627z, K5GJR, 28225.5 khz, Corpus Christi, Texas, Randy uses a
Radio Shack HTX 100 running 2.5 watts into a Vert. at 40 ft.

All of these have an expanded story to tell via QRZ.Com and most
welcome signal reports whereas LW NDB have their stories and my best
resource so far has been Wikipedia.
73,s and have fun. Gary, km5x`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Confirmed UT Saturday May 20 at 0130, S9/+10 into Georgia SDR, but NOT

** U S A. (7490-), UT Sat May 20 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with a new
`AAAWWW`. Angela again remote on the phone with occasional comments.
He first rails against reparations, as those today cannot be
accountable for what their ancestors did. Even as an admitted Jew he
thinx reparations are ridiculous. Quadricasting on 7490, 6160, 5130,
3265 announced at least twice at 0022 & 0039 on 19th of May YOOFL
2023. Good news about AM radio in cars as some bipartisan legislation
is pending. He and Timtron have been doing a lot of work on backup
transmitters; usual anti-screen, pro-knobs rant. Needs more paid
programming or may have to start turning off transmitters during
unpaid. 0050 about to go into Free Radio Weekly when our power cuts
off and on five times in a row; with no storms around here. Causing me
to have to rewrite parts of this report. I never got around to
checking any of the SW frequencies direct. Never heard any
anti-Democratic comments this week tho could have been in final
dekaminute missed when he usually quotes supportive emailers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17763-17786, May 19 at 2017, rapid clicking like OTH
radar in the middle of the 16m BC band; fortunately no stations amid,
but right next to 17790 WRMI; roughly 25 kHz bandwidth (Glenn Hauser,
